Fanciful Feathers with Jean Martin

Are you ready for some more amazing inspiration from the design team? Today, Jean Martin is sharing a few gorgeous projects featuring Fanciful Feathers.

I was especially looking forward to seeing Jean's projects with this set as she personally requested a feather set a few months ago. To be honest, I was a little nervous, hoping that I could deliver with something a little different but something that she would still really love.

You may want to grab a beverage and sit back, because you are seriously in for a treat!

Jean has created this gorgeous stationery set. Each design is slightly different, but all still use the same imagery and colors. Notice how sometimes she's stamped the solid feather image, sometimes the outlined feather image, and then other times she's paired them together!

With the gorgeous patterns that she has created, you really don't need to fuss with much more. A simple sentiment, also included in Fanciful Feathers, stamped in black is a wonderful finishing touch.

And you can't forget the presentation! A little bit of twine and a feather die cut from Kraft card stock wrap up the set. And to accompany the stationery, a matching gift bag with a few more feathers. Beautiful and elegant.

Now, I had no doubt that Jean would pull out some gorgeous, soft and feminine examples with this set...but she's been knocking it out of the park with her clean and simple designs lately too!

Talk about unexpected! This one may be my favorite. The color-blocking, the gold embossing, the stronger colors and then that punch of soft blue. The hard angles and clean lines paired with the organic shape of the feather, and then she divides it?! Perfect execution that all adds up to a memorable design!

Are you ready for one more? It really doesn't take make much to create a stunning card as Jean demonstrates here. In true crafter fashion, where everything can be re-used or re-purposed...why not use the negative die cut from the previous card? Use the same basic layout and you've got two for one!
